Episode 454: Exercise-induced osteoarthritis: Running into problems?

In episode 454, James and Mike invite Adam Keough to go through all the evidence around the impact of long-term running. We find out that recreational running likely does not increase the risk of developing osteoarthritis but high-level elite athletes may have an increased risk. Interestingly, exercise is one of the most effective treatments for reducing osteoarthritic pain. So as with most things in life – it’s all a balance.

Episode 453: Does baby know best? Baby-led weaning for transitioning to solid foods

In episode 453, James and Mike invite Jessica Kirkwood to go over all the evidence for transitioning infants to solid foods using a baby-led weaning approach versus traditional spoon feeding. Overall, it really didn’t make much difference which approach was used. But listen to hear us take a bite out of all the nuances and context.

Episode 452: Once upon a time in diabetes land – squirrel!

In episode 452, James and Mike go over 2 recent publications which encapsulate all the important evidence around type 2 diabetes. We talk about the misdirection that occurs with T2DM evidence versus what we do in practice. We now have all the evidence and we know what these medications do or don’t do to important clinical endpoints. Could we please use this information when we treat T2DM.
